Former '90210' Star Reads Poem About Wishing She Was Putin's Mom—And It's A Major Cringefest

Former '90210' Star Reads Poem About Wishing She Was Putin's Mom—And It's A Major Cringefest

We regret to inform you that celebs are at it again.

Remember when Gal Gadot wrangled a bunch of A-list names together to sing John Lennon's "Imagine" at the beginning of the pandemic and everyone collectively was like "why?" and "stop"? Nothing could ever top that in terms of the cringe factor right?

Wrong, dear reader!

Dead wrong. Allow us to introduce you to actress AnnaLynne McCord, formerly of 90210 reboot fame, presently of slam poetry about wishing she was Russian President Vladimir Putin's mom infamy.

Yes, you read that correctly and yes, it's as awkward and weird and mortifying as it sounds—no, actually, it's worse.

See for yourself below.

So that is a thing that happened.

The poem, titled "Dear Mister President Vladimir Putin," of course comes on the heels of Putin's invasion of Russia's Western neighbor Ukraine, which has left the world reeling as it watches one of the world's most brutal dictators attempt to illegally seize a sovereign country.

If you've been wondering why exactly this is happening, it is of course very complicated--but not to McCord! The 34-year-old actress has cracked the case.

See, the problem all stems from the fact that Putin's mommy didn't love him. So now he's very, very angry and he's taking it out by invading a sovereign nation and threatening to nuke anyone who tries to stop him. But if McCord had been his mother--well, this all could have been avoided. It's all very simple, you see!

Here, let McCord explain it to you, via her poem:

“I’m so sorry that I was not your mother."
"If I was your mother, you would have been so loved, held in the arms of joyous light."
"Never would this story’s plight."
"The world unfurled before our eyes."
"A pure demise.”

Granted, not one word of that makes any sense—that's not how you use the words "plight" or "demise" so it's hard to even know what on Earth McCord is even talking about, let alone get a sense of how any of this is helping things in Ukraine. But at least she tried. 'A' for effort?

Twitter, of course, disagreed.

Suffice to say, they had some feedback on McCord's poem.

So far, Putin has yet to stand down, but Russia and Ukraine have agreed to meet tomorrow for potential peace talks. Maybe we have McCord to thank.

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird was criticized after telling the audience at the Republican National Convention that the GOP is known to "put criminals where they belong: in jail"—only to then encourage everyone to vote for convicted felon former President Donald Trump.

In May, Trump became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. The jury found him guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to illegally influence the 2016 election. His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
